KING: : Books The movie is about doing what you can but still having nowhere to go, and every image in it—the sea and the sky, the bare landscape, the half-abandoned houses—reinforces this feeling. Rose Madder is the Stephen King I know and love. Still, it is the same story, in spite of the different tilts of meaning and of obvious and extensive changes in the development of characters and their part in the plot. Norman also has a violent temper and was recently accused of assaulting a black woman named Wendy Yarrow. Some of us want realistic relationships with realistic men. I do hope to see this adapted on the big screen one day.

Shelves: stephen-king-read Opening with one of the most vivid scenes of violence I have ever read, Rose Madder tells the compelling tale of Rosie Daniels as she makes the decision to, and subsequently, leaves her vicious husband, Norman. It is so harsh and was mentally exhausting for me. I would put it down and then just avoid it. I knew if I kept going, I would enjoy the Opening with one of the most vivid scenes of violence I have ever read, Rose Madder tells the compelling tale of Rosie Daniels as she makes the decision to, and subsequently, leaves her vicious husband, Norman.
I knew if I kept going, I would enjoy the book, I just needed to be in the right head space to do so. Even for King, those first pages are brutal and shattering because you know this type of thing happens in real life, to real people. A corrupt cop with a penchant for violence against women. That is certainly the case here. From Rosie and Norman, all the way to the smallest side characters, I felt like I knew them all.
Rosie married Norman when she was very young, just out of high school. She had lost her family and had no outside support system.
He became her whole world, no matter how difficult that world was. After she decides to leave, she discovers just how sheltered she has become.
Her ability to navigate the outside world is close to nonexistent. I felt bad for her. I wished I was there to help her and guide her. She has no skills. What will she do for a job? How will she survive without money? Fleeing for her life, she boards a bus and selects the farthest stop she can afford.
Once there, she will try to build a new life for herself with no resources. She left everything behind. Now his sole mission, he has big plans to make her pay. No matter what it takes, no matter how many laws he has to break, he will not give up. The intensity that builds over the course of this book is truly something special.
The narrative alternates back and forth between Rosie and Norman, so you can track his progress, and that really helped to build the sense of dread. I became quite attached to Rosie rather quickly, as did many she met in her new life. That definitely escalated my fear for what I suspected was coming. In addition, there was a really interesting fantastical element thrown in that reminded me a bit of a cross between The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Dark Tower series.
I truly enjoyed this story. Thank you to all my Constant Reader friends who pushed me to finally pick it up this year. I found it to be empowering and moving. I loved Rosie so much and her growth was satisfying. I am very happy I made time for it and can absolutely see myself reading it again some day.
